Whole Teriyaki Pork Belly on the Gas BBQ 

Whole Teriyaki Pork Belly on the Gas BBQ

Get ready to embark on a culinary journey that combines the simplicity of a gas BBQ with the richness of whole teriyaki pork belly. This show-stopping recipe turns your backyard into a flavour haven, where the sizzle of the Sahara grill and the aroma of teriyaki create a symphony for your taste buds.

What you need:

  • 1 whole pork belly (around 3-4 pounds)
  • 1 cup teriyaki sauce
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped green onions and sesame seeds for garnish

What to do:

  1. Preheat your Sahara gas BBQ to medium-high heat. The efficiency of a gas grill ensures a consistent and controlled cooking environment for your whole
    teriyaki pork belly.
  2. In a bowl, combine teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, grated ginger, sesame oil, and a sprinkle of sesame seeds to create a flavourful marinade.Whole Teriyaki Pork Belly on the Gas BBQ marinade
  3. Score the skin of the pork belly, creating shallow cuts to help the marinade penetrate the meat. Season the pork belly with salt and pepper, ensuring the flavours seep into every inch.
  4. Generously coat the pork belly with the teriyaki marinade, making sure to get it into the scores on the skin. Allow it to marinate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight for an intensified flavour.
  5. Once marinated, place the whole pork belly on the preheated gas BBQ. The sizzle as the meat hits the hot grill is the sound of culinary magic.
  6. Turn off the gas grill under the pork belly and turn the remaining grills to medium heat. Grill the teriyaki-marinated pork belly, turning occasionally, until the skin is crispy and the internal temperature reaches 160°F (71°C). The gas BBQ ensures a consistent and reliable heat source for even cooking.
  7. Baste the pork belly with the remaining teriyaki marinade during grilling, adding layers of flavour and creating a glossy, caramelised finish.
  8. As the pork belly grills to perfection, embrace the tantalizing aroma that fills the air – a fusion of teriyaki sweetness and smoky grill goodness.
  9. Once done, let the whole teriyaki pork belly rest for a few minutes before slicing.  This resting period allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring a moist and succulent result.
  10. Slice the teriyaki pork belly into generous portions and garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds for an added visual and flavour dimension.

Grilling a whole teriyaki pork belly on your Sahara BBQ is a culinary adventure that celebrates the simplicity of outdoor cooking with the precision of a gas grill.
The result? A mouthwatering masterpiece that promises to be the star of your backyard gatherings. So, fire up that BBQ, let the grill work its magic, and savour the whole teriyaki pork belly experience like never before.
